BSO- Davis told Jim Rome on CBS Sports Radio he sees similarities between the “truly phenomenal” Curry and Carolina — because of the constant disrespect.
“He’s a lot like we are as a football team right now, with so many people doubting him when he first came into the league. They had so many knocks on him, what he couldn’t do, what he wasn’t going to be able to do, he’s going to be a backup his whole career, and he’s proved everybody wrong,” Davis said. “It’s kind of where we’re at as a football team. We hear all the doubters, people telling us what we can’t do, what we won’t be able to do, and we just continue to stay focused on what we’re trying to accomplish, just like Steph.
“We’re just trying to do it the right way, and that’s the main focus of this football team and what we’ve been able to do this season.”
Ahh, so close Thomas, so close. It was right there for the taking, but for some reason you swerved left. You decided to compare your apple to an orange, when there was literally another apple right under your goddamn nose. Think of how much easier it would have been to compare the Golden State Warriors to the Carolina Panthers. Two undefeated teams. Both semi-disrespected to start the year. Both on incredible runs. Both being led by potential MVP candidates. That analogy was literally a lay-up, but Thomas Davis decided to stop on a fast break and launch some prayer of a jump shot from Steph Curry range. Good thing he is pretty damn good at football, because I can't imagine that verbal score on the SAT's was anything to write home about with that level of thinking.
Comparing one single man to a roster of 53? That went just about as well as expected. Hey Thomas, do me a favor and be more vague. Maybe throw around some more keywords. Doubters, disrespect. Yup, that'll do it. I guess he just showed that you can pretty much compare Steph Curry to any group of people that have ever accomplished anything unexpected. I'll tell you who should be pissed by this analogy, the rest of the Golden State Warriors. 23-0 and they can't even get a shoutout in an ill-concieved juxtaposition made by an NFL player. As much respect as this quote shows to Steph Curry, it shows just as much disrespect to his teammates. Thomas Davis basically just implied that the Warriors are the 'tomahto' to Steph Curry's 'tomato', and I am pretty sure they deserve a little more credit than that.
